SPIRAL RING No. 1

Capturing gold almost in its liquid state, the Spiral series curves sensually around the neck, wrist or finger embodying the pioneering vision of Griegst’s customised cire perdue technique. Like locks of golden hair the fluted gold twist and writhes over the skin like a coil spring with seductive lightness. Produced since the 1970s, the pieces are Griegst’s ode to antique Roman jewellery as if seen through a magnifying glass found at the bottom of the sea.

SPIRAL HISTORY

”In the master’s hand the gold comes alive for the marvellous material it is. No one can get the gold to speak like Arje Griegst. Not merely that it always glitters, but gold as a marvellous malleable material with many hues; soft, warm and organic.” – The Bank of Denmark Jubilee Foundation’s Honorary Grant, 1999

SPIRAL BRACELET CATALOGUE, 1973

Arje Griegst developed his own technique to cast jewellery. It was exactly what he needed to manifest and precisely what he intended: an organic, dramatic form of expression.

SPIRAL RING NO. 6, 18K GOLD.

Gold that bewitches, gold as light.

TRUMPET KNOT, 18K GOLD WITH TAHITI PEARL.

Griegst represents a world of metaphorically vibrating jewellery.

 SPIRAL BRACELET NO. 10, 18K GOLD.

What fascinated Arje was the metal’s capacity to reflect light, keep its lustre and make jewels glow. The Spiral series reveals his ability to depict essentially different expressions and the design moves as if along a natural trail.
